Violinist Emery Davis is influenced by jazz horn players as much as
by the great jazz violinists, Stephane Grapelli, Claude Williams and Joe
Venuti. His modern mainstream writing will be a treat for all who enjoy
McCoy Tyner or the late Woody Shaw.
"At once the consummate violinist and the sophisticated jazzer, he
pleases both camps as few have, pairing his proficient violin chops with
his horn-like phrasing...a joyful improviser and a sure composer." -Hollis Taylor, Strings Magazine
